Rep. Gabrielle Giffords can now breathe on her own. The intended target of the shootings in Tuscon had her breathing tube removed. She is still in critical condition after the shooting that took six lives in Arizona. Authorities have arrested a man, Jared Loughner, in connection with the shootings. Although she is still in critical condition, this is good news.

Religious groups and academic groups will be able to sponser travel groups to the formerly locked up country. The new policy should increase our interaction with the people and hopefully plant ideas of freedom from the Cuban govornment. More American “promotion of freedom” is just what our foreign policy needs…..
Tom Brady is an asshole, an Australian boy sacrificed his life for his younger brother and its looks like many more people will be losing their homes in the financial depression. Not as good as yesterday, but when is it ever?
Tom Brady is an asshole. True? Maybe. May or may not be totally newsworthy other than the fact that there is nothing like watching the circus thats been going on before the rivalry playoff game between the Pats and the Jets. In the latest development, Jets player Anthony Cromartie called Patriots quarterback an “assohole.” Sports just aren’t fun with sportsmanship…
